Request for Proposals: HepConnect Initiative to Expand Harm Reduction & Community Education

Harm Reduction Coalition released a request for proposals for the Support Harm Reduction & Community Education component of the HepConnect Initiative. The overarching goal of the project is to advance hepatitis C prevention for people who inject drugs by expanding harm reduction services and education through grant-making and technical assistance. Harm Reduction Coalition will be funding up to $6 million in grants over an initial 18-month period that support the expansion of harm reduction approaches to reduce the impact of hepatitis C and drug-related harms in the greater Appalachia region. Harm Reduction Coalition is seeking proposals that will build upon local expertise, uplift the voices and priorities of people who use drugs, and center racial justice.

Eligible applicants include organizations, coalitions, or groups with a 501(c)3 non-profit status or a fiscal sponsor with a 501(c)3 status that offer services in the five HepConnect initiative states (Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, and North Carolina); local and state health departments and other government entities are eligible to apply. Grant requests may range from $25,000 to $150,000. Applications are due July 31, 2019 by midnight ET.
